- The Muppets

Labyrinth, a Jim Henson Company film starring David Bowie has to be one of my absolute favorite films to ever exist. I've been undoubtedly obsessed with David Bowie ever since I first saw him in the music video for "Modern Love", and finding him in a Jim Henson Co. movie was like finding a winning lottery ticket on the sidewalk. Safe to say, I was ecstatic. Another thing I've been "undoubtedly obsessed with" is The Muppets (literally my special interest), and Jim Henson by association. So it's safe to say that I fell in love with Labyrinth upon seeing it. From the astounding songs and score to the loveable characters AND THE PUPPETRY OH MY G*DDDDD, I love this movie through and through. I could safely say that this movie is my second favorite (after Muppet Treasure Island, of course)!
The Muppets, the thing that bounces around in my mind like a DVD logo, the thing that influences every aspect of my life, the media property I hold so very dearly to my heart. I absolutely love The Muppets. This has been my special interest for as long as I can remember! I absolutely love The Muppet Show, its predecessor, Sam and Friends, all the movies (especially "Muppet Treasure Island" the first time I ever saw Tim Curry in media), the merchandise, everything about The Muppets. My favorite Muppet being Lew Zealand, puppeteered by Jerry Nelson, and my favorite "muppeteer" being Richard Hunt (we'll get to him in the Fraggle Rock shrine) This franchise has totally consumed my life and the framework in which I view media, and honestly, I'm not complaining.
